Two men had to be rescued from the cliffs of Tintagel after being cut off by the tide.
The couple had gone fishing, but climbed the cliff – about 20 feet – to avoid the waves, which then left them stranded.
A Coast Guard rescue helicopter was dispatched to the scene and the two men were transported to safety on Wednesday evening.

Boscastle and Polzeath Coastguard rescue teams first attended the scene after a friend reported the men became trapped around 9.45pm last night.
The affected duo had managed to climb the cliffs, despite the wet and slippery surfaces, rescue teams said.
A spokesperson for HM Coastguard said: “Yesterday at around 9.45pm HM Coastguard received a call to 999 regarding two men trapped on a cliff in Tintagel.
“Coastguard rescue teams from Boscastle and Polzeath have been dispatched, alongside the Newquay search and rescue helicopter.
“The men were hoisted to a helicopter landing site at Tintagel Cricket Club.”
